INSHORE- Snook fishing has been good again this week inshore. We aren't talking huge numbers, but putting in the time should result in a few bites. The topwater bite has been good early morning and on the better part of the tide changes. Live mullet fished along ambush points, along seawalls with current, and under boat docks with access to deeper water are all also working very well. A fair number of tarpon around in the Loxahatchee River this week as well. The tarpon have also been keyed in on the mullet. The jacks showed up briefly inshore, but seem to have pushed out as quick as they came in. Sheepshead action has pretty much dried up, but maybe a late season one or two around. Palm Beach Inlet remains pretty good for the jacks, and also some tarpon at night.
SURF/PIER- Pompano fishing remains good along thew beach right now. The numbers have slowed a bit over the past few weeks; but still definitely fish to be caught. Shrimp, clams, FishBites, and FishGum have all been good choices for the pompano. The Juno Beach Pier, and also Jupiter Inlet, have been producing a few pompano on Doc's Goofy Jigs. Bright colors (orange, pink, chartreuse) all seem to be working pretty well. A few late season bluefish around still, though they are tapering off a bit numbers wise. The Juno Beach Pier has had a good bite on croakers this week. Fresh pieces of shrimp has been the bait of choice. Still a bit early, but snook reports continue to improve from the pier on a weekly basis. Most of the fish are on the smaller side, with a few slots mixed in. The snook are starting to eat live baits which is a good sign that they are getting more active. Sharks are still around in good numbers if your looking for something bigger to pull on!
